Reviews

"...The book provides an incredible view of the mutability of the fashion landscape, and a powerful documentation of changing attitudes towards the female form. The collection serves as a point of reference for how society has weathered the continually oscillating landscape of the human form, sexuality and desire, and showcases the work the calendar has done to challenge convention and traverse boundaries."
"... fun, stylish, occasionally verging on the scandalous but never overstepping into vulgarity."
"Now, at last, you too can own a Pirelli calendar, or at least a lavish, weighty collection of all of them [in] Pirelli - The Calendar. 50 Years and More. To look at the calendars is to witness not only the obvious and the alluded-to, but also a fascinating view of the swiftly changing, wildly imagined landscape of fashion photography, and fashion itself (and yes, there are clothes-just not, you know, lots of them). This is after all, a calendar in every sense: both anticipating the future, and chronicling the passage of time."
"...nobody looks at the Pirelli Calendar to check the date... If you're reading this, you've most likely never owned a Pirelli Calendar for yourself, this is your chance to get your hands on ALL of them, and in one concise retrospective with some extras too."
"...Pirelli - The Calendar. 50 Years and More reunites every month of the calendars alongside behind-the-scenes images...car talk never felt so racy."
"They took a humble garage calendar and magically turned it around into the most desirable object for the jet set, the glamour set," said Benedikt Taschen, of the publishing house, which is working with Pirelli on a book about the history of the calendars. "And it is the hottest ticket for any photographer working today."
